Residence Hall Policies

Expectations of Resident Students

Residential students are expected to work toward becoming their own best selves and helping others to become their own best selves. Students seeking residence should carefully read the Regis Residence Hall Contract before signing. The Residence Hall Contract stipulates the terms under which students are permitted to live in college provided residences. It also outlines areas of direct responsibility for the university and for the student.
